Time to Brush up on your Greek and Roman Mythology

Before I introduce this next family of three:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First we have mama Jupiter – another one of our ace milkers – named after the King of the Gods in ancient Roman religion and also the the god of Sky and Thunder.  Next year the name Zeus will have to be in the running.  Next to Jupiter we have her daughter Apollo – the god of light and sun …and apparently also friendliness. It’s like having a shadow every time you walk into the barn, and pants-nibbling shadow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
And finally we have Apollo’s twin sister (both in real life at FTF and according to ancient Greek Mythology) Artemis – the goddess of the hunt.  Artemis declined to join the family photo, opting instead for a solo shot with Melissa, the Greek Goddess of capturing baby goats.
